Alternative Therapy

From: Kati


In the past year and a half I have blacked out 5 times. Stress and dehydration are usually the reasons. this morning i blacked out after waking up and having a bowel movement. Anxiety and major fatigue is also present. Other than this I am a healthy 22 year old. My sister experienced the same problems 2 years ago and now takes 20 mg of prozak (for the seratonin stimulating benefits) daily and feels fine. i've been told vaso-vagal syncope is genetic.

my question is: Having a distrust of Western medicine, has anyone found alternative solutions? wether it's seeing a naturopath, nutritionist, acupuncturist, or chiropractor?
